Atlanta Falcons Diaper Cake

When I found out my neighbor was pregnant with a boy after having 5 girls, I knew I had to make her something special to celebrate! They are HUGE sport fans. So I found out their favorite team and made a sports diaper cake to match it.

They love the Atlanta Falcons football team, so I chose the team colors of red and black to decorate the diaper cake. It cost me $25 to make it.

Diaper Cake Supplies:
90 size 2 diapers
1- 1 1/2 inch red satin ribbon
1- 2 1/2 inch black ribbon
1- 3/8 inch black and white polka dot ribbon
1 red baby outfit (top and bottom)
red paper shred
black paper shred
red silk carnation flowers
pre-painted wooden football
1& 1/2 paper towel roll
lollipop stick
Team images printed from the computer
White curling ribbon.

I started by creating 4 layers of the diaper cake, all in a boutique style swirl. I tied white curling ribbon around each layer to hold the diapers in place. Then I stacked the cake, using one and a half paper towel rolls in the center. (I taped them together to make it tall enough). Once the cake was fully stacked, I started to decorate it.

Each layer was covered with the wide black ribbon. I layered the red ribbon over that. Then to add interest, I used another layer of the black and white polka dot ribbon on the top and third layers. I alternated the black and red shred paper on each cake layer. Then I added the wooden football to the front. I attached an image of the team mascot to the football.

For the top, I filled the top of the paper towel roll with paper towels. This gave me a base to stick the centerpiece in. I used 4 carnations to cover the top of the diapers and then stuck a lollipop stick in the center and taped the team's logo to the top.

I displayed the diaper cake on a cake stand. I rolled a baby outfit to look at roses and placed it at the bottom. It was the talk of the baby shower. Everyone really enjoyed the creativity that was involved in making it. ;)

Cake Pan Sizes
by: Nisha- Editor

Hi,

Sorry, I just saw your comment. It has been a few years since I made it, but I believe I used size 12, 10, 8 and 6 pans.

I don't remember the exact breakdown of how many diapers for each tier. The majority of the diapers will be in the bottom layer and you will use fewer diapers to fill each layer as you go up. Make sense? From there, just fill in each layer until it has the look you want.

The top tier had 6-8 diapers in it. Hope that helps. Good luck!

How many diapers per layer?
by: Anonymous

I have made diaper cakes, but I struggle with knowing how many diapers per layer. You used 90 diapers....but do you know how many for each layer?

Thanks so much - GREAT work! This has a real "classic" look to it, and I appreciate the fact that it doesn't have a lot of extra stuff in it that adds to the expense. The ones that I have made have extra stuff, but it makes it so expensive.

Diapers
by: Nisha- Editor

Hi there,

I believe I used the Parent's Choice brand of diapers (Walmart). Sometimes Huggies and Pampers carry an all-white diaper, too. The best trick I've learned over the years is to look at the side panel of the diapers. It should show if the diapers are white or if they have a print or color to them. They will all have some kind of design in the front panel, but if the rest of the diaper is white, then they work great in the candle rolled or swirl diaper cake methods.

Hope that helps! :)
